Cholesterol is a soft, fat-like, waxy substance found in the bloodstream and in all your body’s cells. It’s normal to have cholesterol and it’s an important part of a healthy body because it is used for producing cell membranes and some hormones. It also serves other needed bodily functions.

Hypercholesterolaemia is the medical term for high levels of blood cholesterol.
